A combination of low-dose oral enalapril, methyldopa and hydrochlorothiazide was evaluated in the acute treatment of severe hypertension. Blood pressure moved from an average 210/120 mmHg at the onset to an average 135/79 mmHg within 24 hours, without any significant side effects and at about half the cost of commonly used parenteral hydralazine.
